Binders, Chest

Definition : Binders designed to encircle the chest providing support and keeping the anterior part of the thorax (i.e., chest and ribs) in the appropriate position. These devices are usually made of wide pieces of elastic fabric with hook-and-loop closures (e.g., Velcro) or metal fasteners with small teeth that grab onto and secure the elastic fabric for adjustment of their size; they are available in several sizes. Chest binders are used mainly to support and compress the chest muscles, and/or other chest anatomical structures for rehabilitation after (e.g., cardiothoracic) surgery; they may also provide relief from pain and strain.
